English 309 Summer 2016

Assignment Number Five:

Proposal Letter and Article Summary

This writing assignment is due before midnight on Sunday, July 31, 2016 This assignment consists of two separate components: a formal business letter, and a summary or abstract of a professional technical article. Both components must be of professional writing quality, and should be SUBMITTED AS A SINGLE DOCUMENT. You will choose a Request for Proposal from an outside source (many are available through the internet), and prepare a formal Proposal in response for Assignment Seven; Assignment Five is designed to help you begin preparing your Proposal, and should provide an excellent opportunity for you to discover the current state of events in your chosen professional field. For your Proposal Letter, you must first locate a formal Request for Proposal and analyze it carefully. Searching the internet using simply “Request for Proposal” will return a number of results that instruct you how to write or prepare an RFP, which is NOT required for this assignment. The most effective search terms will incorporate “Request for Proposal” in addition to some other term, also in quotations, related to your major field of study. Once you’ve identified an appropriate RFP, you should prepare your Proposal Letter following standard format for business correspondence, and address it to the contact person listed on the RFP you have chosen. Your Proposal Letter MUST include EACH of the following elements to receive full credit: – the name of your company or organization – a copy or working internet link for the outside Request for Proposal that your formal Proposal will answer – a list of essential elements and/or tasks required for you to complete your Proposal (i.e., bids, document specifications, member credentials, research regarding market costs) – a proposed timeline for completion of your project – NOT your Proposal for this class, but the project you’re offering to complete in response to the RFP. For your Article Summary, you must locate a SEPARATE technical article related to the preparation of your Proposal. SUBMISSIONS WHICH SUMMARIZE THE RFP CHOSEN FOR YOUR PROPOSAL LETTER WILL NOT BE GIVEN FULL CREDIT. Your Article Summary should be presented in MLA or APA format, and MUST include EACH of the following elements to receive full credit: – heading in MLA or APA format – proper citation for the source of your article, in MLA or APA format – a thorough summary or abstract of the article, consisting of at least three full paragraphs – a copy or working internet link for the article you are summarizing. Page 2 of 2 In preparing this assignment, choose your Request for Proposal carefully; it should be related in some way to your major field of study or professional experience. The article you choose to summarize should be one of the sources you plan to use for your Proposal. The formal guidelines for your Proposal are set forth in detail in Assignment Number Seven.

You are also encouraged to make references to the assigned readings (ie. comparisons and/or contrasts with your own observations/reflections and observations/reflections from the authors assigned this semester).

In each entry, describe, observe, and reflect on the natural scene that you are writing about.
